John 16:2 In der Tat, es kommt die Stunde, wenn wer euch tötet, meinen wird, er bietet Dienst für Gott.
"Wir haben so das menschliche Leben in unserer Gesellschaft, dass für viele Menschen ist es eine kleine Sache, eine andere Person zu töten, ist entwertet."
-Jim Bakker in "Wohlstand und der bevorstehenden Apokalypse"
Mindestens 19 Christians have been killed when gunmen stormed a church in Okene, Nigeria and opened fire during the middle of worship. The pastor was among those killed.
The terrorists used Kalashnikov assault rifles leading to government officials suspecting the militant Islamist group Boko Haram which has been responsible for the murders of other Christians inside Nigerian churches.
The attack was located further south than most of the Boko Haram attacks.
Lt. Mit. Gabriel Olorunyomi, joint military force commander, said the attack on Deeper Life Bible Church also wounded many others who were taken to various hospitals.
Okene was the location of an April raid by security forces on a bomb-making factory for Boko Haram. Nine Islamic militants were killed in that raid.
